Read on and don't forget to share with your
friends and family.
Your kitchen may be the center
of the household, and your living room for family fun, but
despite all of the comforts around your home, the bathroom is
the one place most people can go to for privacy and
relaxation. In the morning, this is the place where you
prepare for the day ahead and at night it’s the spot where
you unwind. Most master bathrooms are a bit more luxurious
than bathrooms throughout the rest of the home, but there is
always room for improvement. Here are a few ways to outfit
your bathroom and feel like royalty:
1. Heated flooring. What makes it extra difficult to get out of a
warm shower on a frigid winter morning? Stepping directly
onto a cold floor. Heated flooring makes for more enjoyable
winter mornings and evenings, increased relaxation and even
helps to heat the room overall.
2. Double sinks. These
days, most master bathrooms come equipped with two sinks to
make life a little easier in the morning when everyone is
rushing to get ready. If yours doesn’t, this is the first
upgrade you should make!
3. Better lighting. Have you ever done your hair or shaved, only
to emerge into natural sunlight and realized you don’t look
as put together as you thought? Dull or yellow lighting can
make it a hassle to do everyday tasks like putting on makeup.
Invest in fixtures that keep the bathroom and mirror
4. Heated towel rack. If heated flooring doesn’t feel like enough,
this is also one fixture that can give you the
“straight-out-of-the-dryer” warmth you long for when you
reach for your towel after a shower or bath.
5. The little things. So, you’ve got the perfect bathroom, but what
about the accessories? Invest in quality towels, luxurious
soaps and calming candles to turn your own bathroom into a
off of every $5,000 spent*

you made your resolutions for the new year? Typically, a resolution list includes goals
that can seem out of reach. For example, you may aim to put a
certain amount of money into your savings account, or lose a
specific amount of weight. However, most people tend to lose
sight of these goals just a few short months into the year.
Instead of creating many different goals, a better option may
be to make a broader, all-encompassing goal: balance.
When it comes to diet and
exercise, you’ve probably heard the word “balance” more than
anywhere else - and with good reason! Rather than beginning
the year with unattainable goals of quitting sugar, or
exercising five days a week, aim for a more balanced
lifestyle. If you eat that extra cookie for lunch, don’t
worry! You can pair it with a healthy and nutritious meal for
dinner. If you skip the gym to catch a few more hours of
sleep, it’s no big deal. Your body needs rest too, and a
ten-minute walk after lunch will feel just as good AND set
you up for success!
Emotions are tough to tackle,
but creating a balance in your daily life can help even out
the highs and lows that come with simply being a human.
Instead of trying to achieve the goal of always ”being
positive,” it’s healthier and more attainable to recognize
ALL of your emotions and even write them down. For every
negative emotion you feel, think of a positive one. It’s can
also be helpful to discuss your emotions with other people,
rather than holding them in and trying to untangle them
You don’t have to meditate
daily or attend every weekly service to feel spiritually
fulfilled. Sometimes feeding your spirit is as simple as
making sure you make time for yourself and doing something
that you love and appreciate. This can mean going for taking
a walk in your favorite outdoor spot, cooking your favorite
dish or taking a long, relaxing bath without any
Technology has made life a lot
easier - we can now order groceries online and pick them up
curbside, have food delivered from almost any restaurant, and
even order a car to take us wherever we need to go with the
touch of a button. However, these new conveniences also come
with their own set of dangers, and require certain
precautions and mindfulness.
Rideshare services in
particular can quickly turn dangerous if the driver has
ulterior motives. Although companies like Uber and Lyft have
restrictions in place and a detailed application process,
they aren’t meeting with every driver in person for a
face-to-face interview, or even keeping up with them after
they are contracted. Whether you’re using these services to
get to work, school or home after a night out, keep these
safety tips in mind:
1. Always tell a friend or family member where you
are going. Letting
another person know your destination will ensure that someone
will know if you don’t arrive. If you are ordering the ride
for someone else who has been drinking, it’s always a good
idea to go with them and make sure they arrive safely.
2. Pay attention to your surroundings. From the moment you order the ride, to the
moment you reach your destination, pay attention. Does the
car and drive that arrived match the one on your rideshare
app? Is the driver following the mapped route, or taking any
shortcuts? Has the driver unexpectedly cancelled the ride? If
you notice anything fishy, exit the vehicle asap, alert the
authorities and report the driver.
3. Be cautious when the ride is over. If your drive tries to contact you after the
ride is over, or finds you on another social media platform,
report them rather than responding or engaging with
friend or family member to
